Our first full week back at school in Year 3 has been a very busy one. We have welcomed Moini, Julia and Naomi to our class and pray for those who have left Pope Paul.
We have written interesting sentences using adjectives and questions in English and everyone is working hard on their handwriting and presentation.
In Maths, we have used Dienes equipment, number fans, bead strings and written models to represent 2 and 3 digit numbers. We have also continued learning to count in 3s from 0.
During Science we have investigated what plants need to grow and why it is important to remove weeds.
Our chest and bounce passes have really improved this week in P.E. and we have played lots of different games to develop our running and dodging skills.
Home learning – to be completed by next Wednesday please.
This evening I have sent home a blue folder containing your child’s passwords, a book list, a handwriting/spelling sheet and a copy of our cursive letter formation.
The spellings on the handwriting sheet are to be traced and then copied. The children will be tested on these words next Friday so please revise them at home and use this link to practice https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/22/19-Words-with-the-sound-spelt-ei-eigh-or-ey
I have set mathletics and would like your child to read for 10 – 15 minutes a daily. Please sign their reading record and return their books and records every Thursday. They may log onto read theory and complete one of the comprehension quizzes on there also, but this is optional.
Have a lovely weekend,
